Manning got numerous reps during the portion of practice the media viewed -- according to the Denver Post - which settled any anxiety about the injury he sustained during Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Coach John Fox said that Manning's ankle looked "fine" in preparations for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins.
